This accessibility statement applies to The Beehive website.


This website is currently run by Burgess Hill Town Council and we want as many people as possible to be able to use this website.

· navigate most of the website using speech recognition software

· listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)


We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
